CUMPULSORY TREATMENT / EUROPEAN MEDICINES AGENCY

April 25, 2017

By Ulla Danielsen,
Tomorrow, on April 26 the Danish parliament Folketinget is debating a bill about compulsory somatic medical treatment of lasting incapacitated patients above 15 years of age.
If this bill is going to be Danish legislation, it will be a core argument against ever placing European Medicines Agency (EMA) in Denmark, when this institution is going to be relocated within the European Union because of BREXIT, wouldn’t it?
At the homepage of Folketinget the proposed authoritarian Danish legislation is presented in this way:
”With the bill it is suggested introducing rules, according to which compulsory treatment of lasting incapasitated somatic patients above 15 years of age will be sanctioned.
Furthermore regulations about forced intervention, that are assuring, that the forced intervention can be carried out, including rules for physical retention, the use of sedatives, compulsory hospitalization, retention and recapturing (of the patient) and implementation of personal hygiene is suggested.”
The bill does not mention experimental medical treatment, but what about it?
